What is "1000 Breaths"

On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

What started as the 1000 Breaths fundraiser event has become a movement for the freedom of us all. This blog expands now to encompass all the good works being done in the name of "freedom for all" as heard on the "FREEDOM FOR ALL" Internet Radio show.

It's Always All About Freedom

The show is called Freedom For All.
But what does that mean really?
Often as co-hosts we delve into this topic of freedom with a guest each week.
And each week, the guests cover the freedom topic in their own way.
There is talk about inner freedom and a freedom in our society.
Join us this week when we delved into what the show is all about - the ways we are free on the inner and the outer ... and ways that we are not.
Check it out - rekindling an aspect of self that everyone of us shares.

Israel and Palestine - A Conflict Explained

You need not go far to see Israel and Palestine is in the news, with the backdrop of freedom as a main theme. We will cover this very hot topic in this edition of Freedom For All. Jim and Jennifer welcome Andrew Meyer.

Women Driving Women

We talked with Renee Belinda Cooper on Freedom for All Radio today. Renee just wanted to keep women safe. Seeing the benefits of the "Uber" company offering fee-based pickups and rides but also seeing a danger for vulnerable women, Cooper started her company so women could receive the same service but in a safe setting. With rates similar to Uber and Lyft and half of a taxi, the company's only difference is that the drivers are all female. Friendly to pets, kids and elders, her company also does background checks for drivers, saying "I don't want felons in the front or in the back." More at WomenDrivingWomen.org
